Best of the action was at the very 1st, w/ heavy birdplay. I landed a short on my 1st, 2nd, and 4th casts. The rest of the day we moved from area-to-area, following the birds. Fish were swirling on top, at times, especially near the end of the trip. My final tally: 2 keepers and 20 shorts, all caught on metal. Some bluefish were caught on the boat, but I did not land even one. One of my fish, that came unbuttoned near the boat, appeared to be a bluefish.
A great day, with a great bunch of fishermen. Only 9 fares, and Capt. Howard were fishing. Rob also fished at times. Matt did a fine job as mate, and we kept him quite busty netting fish all day.
